Stumbled across this today...intriguing!

Nothing that you can't already get from other vendors, but really good prices on Clandestine la Bleue...I guess as they would be coming straight from the man himself. Of course, I can't order because they probably won't ship to Canada of course, but thought others might want to check this out.

It doesn't seem to be operational though, so I don't know...

hmm interesting C. A. Bugnon has launched his own website.
He is selling F. Guy's products under "Other Absinthes from the Val-de-Travers" frusty.gif

They were such sweet friends during the Absinthiades conference, sitting side by side, both claiming for an AOC...

I can't believe people still live up there.

No, it's just me and a couple of dogs. Everybody else has already left for God-Bless-America.

And even you have to make a pilgrimage to godforsaken Buffalo to score some good beer.

I hope you can get quality doggie vittles, at least.

Time to emigrate, dontcha think, buddy?

Hey, no argument from me. Ontario sucks for beer (mostly).

Still, if I move anywhere, it'll be to Montréal.

Well, at least then you'll have easy access to fresh Unibroues.

I think I already dropped enough hints of my intention to stay in absinthe, so I am delighted to announce that I will be helping Claude-Alain Bugnon develop his small business and, in particular, La Clandestine. I can't think of another absinthe I would prefer to be involved with: great absinthes, a wonderful brand, and lots of potential (although always staying "artisanale"). And Claude-Alain probably doesn't need too much of an introduction here: a real force in absinthe.

What Claude-Alain does best is to produce hand-crafted absinthe, and I know he wants to focus on that. Hence my involvement on the communication and sales side. Stage one of this is a new absinthe boutique: absinthe-suisse.com

We hope you like the boutique: we will expand the range slowly, focusing on absinthe from the Val-de-Travers and Pontarlier regions. Cognac comes only from Cognac, and Scotch comes only from certain areas of Scotland: so we want to focus on the birthplace of absinthe.

And thanks for correcting the Val-de-Travers error, mthuilli: the Swiss are not normally known as being invaders of other countries and we renounce any claim to Pontarlier being in the Val-de-Travers!

Happy (and a few hours late) Thanksgiving!

Alan-
I'm partial to Claude-Alain's Capricieuse as opposed to his Charlotte, though I get the distinct impression that he dilutes his distillate with alcohol to get the 72° , instead of a nominal dilution of water. Can you ask him to offer a higher alcohol product with the full contingency of herb concentrations that he'd have with just a water dilution to 72°? I'd be even willing to pay more for the richer product.

On the other hand, I've heard of some movement/political party in Franche-Comté that wants the region separated from France and joining Switzerland instead.

So it goes.
